Perez Hilton, one of the judges, asked Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who was arguably in the lead, whether or not she thinks every state should have same-sex marriage.
Listen to her answer, and why Perez thinks it cost her the crown, here. (The video is of Larry King's interview with Perez Hilton about what happened, hosted on Perez Hilton's site.)
Congratulations to the winner,
Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton, Miss North Carolina
Kristen had to answer a different question, but I hope she's learned that to be Miss USA, you had better represent ALL of the USA, and that includes us Gays!
It's fascinating how because of the controversy over her answer, Miss California is getting MORE attention in the news than the winner. How about a statement of support for the gay community, Kristen? You might just get a bit of your own thunder back!
